Subject RE: Set date issue
Date Tue, 29 Jul 2003 21:47:52 GMT
Hi , 
Thanks for replying. 
I have a very basic question. All I am doing is to use the betwixt API to convert and the
betwixt is using the ConvertUtils internally . Now how does that make sense for me to register
the date class with the convert utils. 

The bean writer writes the dates in the standard format that is date.toString() format. Then
should't the bean reader try to create the date assuming that the format is default because
it is created by the writer. 

I am confused as why I need to register the java.util.Date class  and why the betwixt internally
take care of it? 

Let me know,

i'm pretty sure that this works with CVS HEAD (i've added some unit tests 
to make sure).

this sounds a little mysterious. there are quite a few tests that use 
beans that have int attributes. does the property take an int or an 

if you could supply an example that i could use to replicate the problem 
in a test case then i'd be glad to take a look.
